Ostensible Vice-President-Elect Kamala Harris selected former President Bill Clinton’s long-time assistant Tina Flournoy this week as her chief of staff, according to news reports.

Article originally published at Press California.

Flournoy, a Georgian Law graduate and former teachers union secretary, surfaced in the news during the last presidential election cycle, when Hillary Clinton campaign staffers pondered a suspected dalliance by Mr. Clinton with a woman other than his wife.

Podesta Ponders: Who’s the Energizer?

Flournoy was among those who chimed in on a 2014 email chain from Hillary Clinton campaign director John Podesta, subject line “Who is the ‘Energiser’ [sic] who has been Clinton’s secret lover?”

The suspected Energizer, identified in the emails and press as Julie McMahon, a New York socialite who made millions using unorthodox divorce strategies against estranged husband Goldman Sachs executive Bill McMahon, denied the allegations.

However, author Ronald Kessler, in his 2014 book, The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the President, which the group was discussing, wrote that the secret service dubbed the mystery mistress the “Energizer,’’ after the battery-operated bunny that keeps going, because of her relentless pursuit of the former president.

In the group emails, which includes Flourney and Podesta, Clinton staffers arrange a phone conference to figure out the identity of the so-called Energizer.

“You’re the leader,” Podesta writes to Flourney.

Flourney Flubs Phone Call

The Podesta clatch waits anxiously for the AWOL Flourney to call into the phone conference.

Her excuse: “Sorry. I felll [sic] asleep. Can you clall [sic] in now?” she tardily replies.

Other Podesta emails, released in October 2016 by Wikileaks, reference a Buzzfeed article titled “Plenty Of Innuendo, But No Hard Evidence Of New Clinton Sex Scandal.”

The story, which downplayed documents indicating Mr. Clinton flew numerous times to Jeffery Epstein’s so-called “Orgy Island,” tries to clear the former President of any wrongdoing in relation to the late sexpot blackmailer.

“Good,” Flourney replied.

Kept Tabs on Clinton Cash

Speaking of money, in another email exchange in February 2015, Flourney tells Podesta, in a cryptic email that remains unexplained, with the subject line: “endowment”

“Foreign govt donors: all the money is in.”

Ms. Harris has in recent weeks touted the virtue of transparency. Perhaps she will ask for such from Flourney on this matter, given the nation’s heightened awareness and aversion to non-domestic influences in U.S. politics.

COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet

Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.

Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.

When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.

Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.

The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.

The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.

Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.

American Conservative Movement

Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time.
